Hi im just wondering how much difference would putting an extra 2GB of RAM into my PC make on Crysis when playing on full settings, no AA, at 1280x1024 resolution?

My current specs are:
- AMD Athlon II x2 250 CPU
- 2GB DRR2 800 RAM
- Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD5750

Thanks for any help you can provide :)

I don't think it would make much of a difference the game only calls for 2gb of ram on it's recommended.Your rig should play it pretty it well at that resolution.

^Sorry, but u are wrong.

Maybe add 2GB don't give to u the posibility to play on full setings, but will give to u more FPS and better performance not only in games, in general too.

The most recomendable for a gaming rig today is 4GB.

ok thanks. i can play it on those settings now but only at about 20 - 30 fps i think, so i was hopeing an extra 2GB would be a cheap way of getting a slightly higher frame rate

Bear in mind that the game is also limited by ur CPU.

U can try OC it a little and see what happen.

This is a guide to OC AMD locked processors like yours.

Keep one eye on the temps, not more that 58C in load is fine.
